More 8x8 LO's

So as I've mentioned in my last post, I've been making a scrapbook for my grandmother. She is 92 years old and we don't get to see her as often as I like. This page I used a white 8x8 cardstock that I sprayed with glimmer mist. I then cut out the pp using Gabby's ruffled paper technique. I also used the pleated fan technique in the corner. The butterfly is Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch. This is my husband and grandmother. I titled it "Built in Grandson"
It's not very often that grandma has all her children together in the same place. So this picture is going to be very meaningful to her. I used the half shell punch by Martha Stewart and using a 2 3/4 inch paper I cute it all the way around to give it the illusion that it's a full circle. Then I weaved tulle in the middle and finished it with pearls that I hot glued on.
We went bowling while we were in NY visiting. First time I ever bowled with my grandma. It was awesome. My 3 year old and his great grandma bowling together was priceless. She is 92 and still bowls twice a week.

My dad and my 2 uncles. I used the Martha stewart butterfly punch and then glittered just the end of the wings. Letters are thickers. I handmade the flower. It's from a tutorial that I put on here not long ago.

This is my grandma with her sister (my great aunt) who's name is also Grace (same as my daughters) I handmade the flower. I'll have a tutorial for it soon. It's so easy and fun to make!! I painted the fence with Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress Crackle paint.

Thanks for looking!!!!
